Carradale charity night lifts Alzheimer funds
A GUITARIST who recently made national headlines after turning down the X Factor belted out dance numbers at a charity dance.
Matt McAllister played a mixture of covers and his own compositions during a charity birthday party to celebrate the Erskine family’s first year at Carradale hotel.
As the Courier went to press more than £500 had been raised from the event held last Saturday for Alzheimer Scotland, although the total figure has not been finalised.
Party-goers sampled a sumptuous buffet including some rather unusual fare – such as deep fried breaded cullen skink.
Raffle prizes included four ball games from Carradale, Machrihanish Dunes and Dunaverty, a £50 meal voucher from Carradale’s Dominic Ryan, to be spent at the hotel, and for those too tired to travel home the hotel staff donated a stay in one of its rooms.
